    So with the media player with regards to USB playback stagnated and actually getting worse in some cases, we've been trying to see if streaming/internet radio might be a good alternative. Sufficed to say, the utter and complete randomness that comes up in the playlists is a joke, and the vulgar, misogynistic lyrics of songs that come up after seemingly innocuousness songs is a joke. I never though I'd be advocating parental controls on something, but here we are.

    There is a difference between songs that have grownup/adult "themes", and music that is just words being vomited out of the speakers. If anyone has any suggestions on other channels to try or a way to configure the tune-in account to be less kid-hostile, I'd appreciate it.

    With slacker account, you can get login info from tesla, sign in on a computer and turn off explicit lyrics.

    Nice that it can be done, but how convoluted!

    Well that was anti-climactic.

    Yeah, did that. Explicit lyrics still get through. It's less often, but it some still get through.

    Yeah a bit of a pita to change regularly. You can also install slacker on phone to change setting. Also, you have to reboot center screen for it to take affect.

    Have you tried the Kidz Bop channels? We resort to that when our godchildren are with us.

    It only goes on when they're riding with us... clever changes to some of the lyrics.
